Good recipe. I halved the recipe and eliminated the olive oil..I am always trying to cut down on calories. this dish was very tasty without the oil.
I used authentic hot hungarian paprika, doubled the beef broth and added potatoes. Less is more the the hot paprika. had to add 2 cups of sour cream to cool it down.
I loved this. I ended up using a different kind of butcher cut. Not stew meat but maybe pot roast. It was wonderful.
I was trying to re-create my mother's recipe which got from a Hungarian chef who came to the US to work for the Trumps ( back when Ivana was married to Donald). One think I remembered is that the recipe uses a good part of a whole can ( like at least 3/4) of sweet Hungarian Paprika. Try that to spice it up-- you won't be disappointed. I used roasted red peppers instead of raw green ones and added more beef broth and a little balsamic vinegar. It's almost finished cooking as I write-- just waiting on the beef to get really tender ( I'm cooking on stove top in Dutch oven). But the flavor is fantastic. ( think I used at least 6 Tbsp of paprika). I suggest using 4 T to start and then keep adding to taste as it cooks.
Too bland, would need something to spice it up.
